A water canal runs along a mountainside, from the background directly to the camera.

The amuna is part of a traditional water conservation system that captures and channels rainwater during the rainy season to recharge aquifers, increasing the availability of water during the dry season. The ecosystem-based adaptation/green infrastructure project in Peru is restoring these structures, some of which are 1,500 years old.
